In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention. This time we look at Adam Rouhana, software spring cleaning, selling gear, directing models and Apple WWDC 2024.

  • Guy Lane reports the Belfast photo festival has announced photographer Adam Rouhana as the recipient of its annual Spotlight award for his project Before Freedom, which premieres at the festival this month. "Through this series of images, his work aims to reclaim representations of Palestine from western perspectives," he writes.
  • In My Start to Spring Cleaning, Thom Hogan writes, "All in all, I've lopped over U.S.$500 off my yearly software costs." Nice start but he won't be done, he estimates, until next spring.
  • Mike Johnston wonders How Do You Sell Photo Gear? after putting up a fisheye on eBay and getting only a couple of nibbles.
  • A Reddit poster who (usually) enjoys modeling for new photographers tells a Funny Story and How Not to Treat People You Work With. "The way you treat people is so huge, professionals included. Prompting and posing is hard and comes with time and experience, but just being warm and kind to your clients makes such a difference."
  • In Apple WWDC 2024: The 13 Biggest Announcements, Emma Roth covers the AI initiatives the company plans, including those to Photos. "Apple is bringing AI to the Photos app, too, giving you the ability to search for photos using natural language," she writes. "You can also clean up objects in the background of your pictures, similar to Google’s Magic Eraser. Additionally, Apple is adding AI-powered transcriptions and summaries to Notes and the Phone apps."

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look five years back. And please support our efforts...
